"The Silent Parrot" - an incredible but real story, centered around one of the most enigmatic and fascinating figures of the eighteenth century, the transvestite spy Charles d'Eon / Lia by Beaumont. Ambiguous being, as long as he lived, d'Eon skillfully maintained the mystery of his identity: was he a man or a woman?

After nearly thirty years, the cinematographer Nae Caranfil ("Filantropica", "Asphalt Tango", "The rest is silence", etc.) returns to the theatre with a show on his own text showing an episode of the fascinating life of the knight d'Eon: His mission to the court of Czarina Elisabeth I, where he acted as an agent of influence in favour of France. Realizing that a woman could quickly gain the confidence of the suspicious Czarina, d'Eon chose to be a woman. Thus, taking the identity of the granddaughter of Knight Douglas, the head of the French delegation, he / she shall be able to carry out his mission, but at the same time shall disturb minds and hearts.

A show with real historical characters and deeds, fun, charm, boldness, spying, political and amorous intrigue at one of the most extravagant imperial courts in the world.
